15 Oct Emsculpt: Your No Gym, No Surgery Secret
Even the most svelte, fittest people don’t always have a six pack. It’s the ultimate sign of fitness, and now it’s yours thanks to Emsculpt at RefinedMD. The no gym, no surgery secret from Hollywood elites has been spilt, but there are some caveats. For starters, you need low to moderate body fat (especially on the tummy) in order for a six pack to actually show. That’s why combining Emsculpt with procedures like liposuction is the one-two punch everyone is falling for.
However, Emsculpt isn’t just for the abs. It can also be used on the glutes, legs, and upper arms. These parts of the body don’t require as low of a body fat percentage as the abs in order for toned, built muscles to show. A lot of Emsculpt fans combine various body part treatments, customizing their aesthetic exactly as they wish. Every Emsculpt session requires 30 minutes per area, making it easy to double or even triple down on your sessions. But what exactly is Emsculpt, and how does it work?
Science-Based Muscle Building
We get “toned” or “jacked” because of the combination of muscle cells getting bigger and stronger, while reducing the size of fat cells. “Big muscles” are a result of hypertrophy, which happens when muscles undergo micro-tears. These tears are traditionally made through hours in the gym and countless reps with free weights, body strength training, or on weight machines. When a muscle contracts just the right way, these tiny tears occur and the body goes to work repairing the muscle. Those repairs lead to muscles getting bigger and stronger so they can withstand the contraction next time.
But lifting weights is just one way to force the muscles into contraction.
Emsculpt is a non-invasive procedure in which special devices are placed on the targeted muscles to force them into supramaximal contractions. The procedure can force the muscles you target—and only those muscles—into 20,000 contractions in just 30 minutes. It’s like performing 20,000 perfect squats or 20,000 flawless bicep curls. However, there’s no sweat and no conscious effort on your part. Plus, you don’t have to worry about stabilizer muscles “helping out” and getting bigger, which usually happens when you rely on gym workouts.
Of course, even if you could perform 20,000 lunges consecutively, you’re not going to be a bodybuilder as soon as the session is over. Muscles actually do their growth and strengthening during the rest period after muscle contractions. This is true in the gym and with Emsculpt. Emsculpt users will see visible results within one month after their last session. The exact number of sessions for you will depend on multiple factors, but it’s usually between 3 – 5 per area.
Keeping Your Emsculpt Results
If you’ve ever tried to get “gains” the old-fashioned way but weren’t consuming enough protein, you know what happens: nothing. Muscles need proper nutrition, especially protein, in order to repair and grow. It’s important to have a healthy, gains-focused diet at all times but especially immediately after an Emsculpt session. Bring your favorite protein snack or smoothie with at least 20 grams of protein to consume right after your session. Sipping on BCAA-infused water during and after Emsculpt can also help decrease muscle soreness.
Once you’ve completed your customized number of Emsculpt sessions, it’s recommended that you undergo a maintenance session approximately every six months. Emsculpt is literally an investment in yourself, and one that you need to tend to from time to time. Many Emsculpt fans also choose to add on other body areas once they see the final results from their initial sessions.
Emsculpt as a Gym Companion
Emsculpt is a celebrity favorite for a good reason, but remember that it doesn’t take the place of a healthy lifestyle. Rather, it supplements it. Strength training is still an important part of a healthy lifestyle, so you don’t want to close your gym account or give away your home free weights once you’ve signed up for Emsculpt. Working out and Emsculpt work together for ultimate results. To learn more about Emsculpt or to schedule a session, contact RefinedMD today.
